Allen had been under investigation for distributing narcotics to include heroin, fentanyl, crack and cocaine. During the search warrant, 28 grams of fentanyl and 28 grams of crack was recovered as well as heroin and cocaine. Allen was arrested and charged with possession with intent to distribute narcotics and held without bond at the Charles County Detention Center until February 2020 when he was released on personal recognizance.
